The new year to a lot of people can symbolize a lot of different things. A fresh start. A new beginning. The first step on a new journey. The blank page to a 365-page book. But above all what the new year symbolizes, is the start of resolutions. Now if we’re being honest, resolutions have gotten kind of a bad rap lately. Probably because many of us don’t understand why people choose to do them or why they feel the need to tell people about it. But why wouldn’t they want to say them out loud? Why wouldn’t they take pride in the fact that they’re choosing to better their lives? Because that’s what resolutions really are: decisions. Choices that we make.
